Easy How to Draw a Superhero Tutorial and Superhero Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Superhero and a Superhero Coloring Page. Draw some basic shapes and then mix and match to make your own customized self portrait.

Superhero Drawing

One of the really good things about drawing a superhero these days, is that there are so many classic models to get inspiration from. From the obvious Superman and Wonder Woman, and all the spinoffs that came before and after, a superhero can be as varied as say … all their super powers.

This tutorial gives both boys and girls some basic shapes to start with, but hopefully inspires some mixing and matching of their own. Add a cape, adjust a skirt, change the monogram, or change the colors. Encourage students to use this tutorial as a starting point, instead of an end, to see what kind of new superhero they can dream up.

Materials for Superhero Drawing

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
